NEW! KT Kut-ups!

KT Winner

Congratulations to the winner of our Barn Raising pattern, great in cotton or flannel.

Nan Martino -Oh my Oak Haven! It should be re-named Oak Heaven! I love this line. 

Thanks, Nan, for visiting my blog. And thanks for the kind words about Oak Haven. I love this collection, too! Hope you enjoy your KT pattern.

KT Kut-ups

We now have all the KT Kut-ups for the 5 Oak Haven projects available in the store and online. Our locally made, precut fusible appliques make these quilts so much easier and save your fingers! My thumbs were sore for a week after cutting more than 500 pieces for several of the projects. Yikes! That's alot of hand massages! Here are easy links to each of the projects:

More Cozy Flannel Fun

KT Winner

My box of Cozy Cottage Flannel scraps has found a new home with:
goode58 - Haven't worked with flannels for awhile but you all have inspired me to try again. Happy sewing.
In the box, there are lots of precut squares in several sizes, ready to layer and topstitch for a new Huggable design. Enjoy!

More Flannel Fun

Last week, we shared our projects from the Huggable booklet featuring pinked edge/no batting/no quilting snuggle-able quilts. Today, I'd like to show you a couple of my favorite flannel quilts made with my layered patchwork but sandwiched and quilted like a traditional quilt. First up, an extra-long version of our Huggable quilt, sandwiched with batting and quilted like a more traditional quilt. Love the red border!

Huggable XL
 Joy Johnson, my go-to long-arm quilter, loves the Barn Raising pattern and wanted a soft, cozy version in our flannels. She cut the 5" layered squared with a pinking blade for soft dimension and less raveling, then quilted it to enhance the diagonal design. Kits available at KT Quilt Shop for both flannel quilts.
Barn Raising Flannel
Think flannel this month while our Cozy Cottage Flannels are specially priced. Pick your favorite pattern and make it up in flannels for someone on your holiday gift list. Robert is hinting about a new quilt for his upcoming 60th birthday and definitely wants flannel.

Moda All-Stars Mini Marvels

Another hit from Martingale! More than a dozen delightful mini quilts created by some of the top designers in the industry are gathered together in this beautiful book. My mini churn dash quilt, Dashing, features my layered patchwork method for perfect points every time. This technique works especially well when playing with little pieces. Check your local quilt shop and for all the latest Martingale books.

Dashing by Lynne Hagmeier
Comment this week to win our Barn Raising pattern. It includes 3 more options for block arrangement for 3 different looks. Great in cottons, flannels, brights and KT traditional fabrics.
